Salary.com Announces Latest Release of Insurance Industry Job Models

Expands Job Model and Competency Library to Nine Industries and 1,200 Jobs

NEEDHAM, MA--(Marketwire - November 18, 2009) - Salary.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: SLRY), a leading provider of on-demand talent management, payroll and compensation solutions, announced today that it has added Insurance Industry Job Models to its growing job model and competency library of more than 1,200 job models and 1,300 functional competencies, which provide data and structure for typical jobs at all levels of an organization. Insurance Industry Job Models will enable insurance HR professionals to create job roles and competencies easily and power their talent management systems.

Released this month, Salary.com's annual update of insurance industry competencies now includes more than 100,000 supporting data elements, including behavioral statements, interview questions, learning references, development statements, coaching tips, and writing assistance for performance reviews.

Insurance Industry Job Models include jobs within claims processing, agent service and support, insurance administration, loss control and risk engineering, quality management and compliance, insurance sales and marketing, and provider management, as well as hundreds of IT jobs and general corporate functions. They feature the most robust collection of off-the-shelf job models available to insurance industry HR professionals.

Pre-built job models provide organizations with well-defined data that has been market tested during the past 20 years. Job models enable HR professionals to manage job descriptions, define corporate and functional competencies at the job level, and align competencies across the organization. Job models also provide a strong foundation for talent management solutions.

Other industries included in Salary.com's competency library cover banking, healthcare, retail, software, manufacturing enterprises, IT, CRM, and corporate functions. Salary.com's job model and competency library may be integrated into existing talent management processes, or accessed through Salary.com's TalentManager® and CompetencyManager™ products. TalentManager delivers an integrated set of in-depth competency management, goal and performance management, compensation planning, development and career planning, and succession planning capabilities. CompetencyManager provides the data and unique software to design, create, maintain and export competencies and job models for integration with HR applications.

"Insurance providers can improve their functional and administrative performance and design and deliver better learning programs as part of an effective talent management program supported by well-defined job models," said Brent Kleiman, SVP, marketing & strategy at Salary.com.
